Trump campaign sends vetting documents to potential 2024 vice presidents – here are the notable names


2024 presidential election

The Trump campaign has begun screening vice presidential nominees for the former president — and several notable names are on its shortlist, The Post has learned.

Sense. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), JD Vance (R-Ohio) and Tim Scott (R-SC) all recently exchanged varying degrees of verification documents with the Trump campaign, a close source told The Post on Wednesday.

Just like the answers. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.), Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Republican governor of North Dakota. Doug Burgum and Ben Carson, former secretary of Housing and Urban Development in the Trump administration, the source said.

The verification process has been underway for a month, the person added.

The Associated Press first reported that the paperwork process for potential vice presidential candidates had begun.

A Trump campaign official told the Post that the 77-year-old former president has not yet decided who he will choose to be on the ticket with him in November — or when he will make that decision.

“Anyone who claims to know who or when President Trump will choose his vice president is lying, unless that person is Donald J. Trump,” Trump campaign spokesman Brian Hughes said in a statement.

In May, Trump indicated in an interview with News12 that his final decision on a vice presidential nominee would come “probably not too long before” the start of the Republican National Convention, where he will be officially named the GOP nominee.

The convention runs from July 15 to 18, and traditionally, nominees for vice president are confirmed on the penultimate evening of the event.

“We have so many,” Trump told the outlet when asked to identify his top three choices. “I don’t want to do this, we have so many.”

“We have a lot of people who would do a fantastic job,” he added. =site%20boutons&utm_campaign=site%20boutons
